: : : : Speaking of smuggling out "antique" colonial artifacts,
: : : : the last time Doctor Mary visited the Proctor house
: : : : on what remained of The Crucible set, she just happened
: : : : to pick up an old, dull, beat-up ax head that was in
: : : : the woods by the cabin. She wrapped it up carefully,
: : : : put it in her luggage, and forgot about it until she
: : : : tried to go through the security gate at Logan Airport.
: : : : Imagine her surprise when the guard at the x-ray machine
: : : : did a double-take when looking at her bag, and promptly
: : : : motioned her to one side. "Oh!" Doctor Mary said, with
: : : : her eyes wide in innocent astonishment. "I see you
: : : : noticed my antique ax head!" After 10 minutes of fast
: : : : talking, she was allowed to board her plane, ax head in
: : : : tow. A snug t-shirt and wide hazel eyes plus an
: : : : obviously addled but harmless demeanor can get one
: : : : through anything!
: : : : Doc M
: : : ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~>
: : : Mary,
: : : You will see another fine colonial piece at lunch today. Ask Bernice to show you.
: : : French Trader
: : : P.S. You should answer you email sometime.
: : Okay BillyGnome, now don't go drawing unwarranted conclusions!
: : Clean thoughts only.....*slapping self upside head for even thinking such a thing*
: : Well of COURSE Doc Mary was able to talk her way out of that predicament....comes as no surprise to me. If this were 1757 BC instead of AD she would be sitting on a rock at the shore, illusively enchanting, singing a sweet, alluring song....wearing a black low cut sequinned toga. And the shore around here would be littered with splintered little gnome boats and ships.
: : As to the French Trader...well you know those french. What was it General Webb had said.......can't seem to remember. He could probably talk a bear right out of his honey though, and probably has women swooning up and down the St Lawrence, Champlain and Hudson valleys.
: : BillyGnome
: Well, you know the wool bags I`m working on? They are just large enough for a couple gnomes or lots of little gnome parts. I even think I have one JUST for you BillyGnome!!! You really shouldn`t talk about Doc M like that because it may sent me into a lustful daydream. (for you it would be a nightmare!!)
: French Trader
Ahhhh. The perfidous French. Say something nice about him and off he goes talking about filling wool bags with gnomes and parts. Why should I be surprised? Montcalm promises we can go in peace with our standards and arms back to England, then sends his froggies and Huron heathens after us to massacre us. If the head froggie can be so duplicitous, how can I expect more from this Francais Trader sick with greed and corrupting the pure in heart such as Magua with his sickness?
